NAME

v.adehabitat.mcp - Uses a GRASS vector points map to compute the Minimum convex polygon home range

KEYWORDS

vector, geometry

SYNOPSIS

v.adehabitat.mcp
v.adehabitat.mcp help
v.adehabitat.mcp input=string output=string percent=string [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

--overwrite
Allow output files to overwrite existing files
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

input=string
Name of map containing the relocations to be input
output=string
Name of a vector area map to be output
percent=string
Percentage of the relocations to keep
Default: 95

DESCRIPTION

v.adehabitat.mcp computes the home range of one animal using the Minimum Convex Polygon estimator. This function computes the Minimum Convex Polygon estimation after the removal of '(100 minus percent)' percent of the relocations the farthest away from the centroid of the home range (computed by the arithmetic mean of the coordinates of the relocations for each animal). This function is just a slight modification of the module v.hull of Andrea Aime (aaime@libero.it).
